How do I make a payment using Quick Pay?

You will need your account/invoice number, debit/credit card details and need to know how much to pay. You will be able to pay more than one account in one transaction. Therefore, if you wish to pay Council Tax and an invoice, you will only need to enter your card details once.

When you have entered the Quick Pay facility, you will be shown step-by-step instructions, with examples, on how to proceed on each page.

Are my payments secure?

The page used to collect personal details, such as your name and address is protected by a digital certificate called a Secure Socket Layer (SSL). This certificate is installed onto the web server to ensure that it is secure. Our secure-server software encrypts all sensitive information using industry standard technology. Click on the padlock icon in the bottom right hand corner of your browser to view certificate details.

Details collected will not be passed on or sold to, any other parties.

To protect your security, please ensure you close your browser after completing the online payments process.

Will the system show me how much I need to pay?

Quick Pay does not give balances on accounts, so you need to know this before making the payment. If you are unsure how much you owe, please contact the relevant department of the Council who can give you this information.
